Private Cloud Fax: A Revolution in Healthcare Communication for 2024


Paperless Productivity

Posted on: February 4, 2024

Fax as you’ve known it may be a thing of the past.

At least, one hopes the days of shuffling papers, physically restricting access for HIPAA purposes, and watching transmissions vanish into the ether are long gone.

We designed Private Fax Cloud®, powered by RightFax, to bring secure healthcare communication up to 2024 standards.

  • Secure transmissions to/from any device, any time, any place.
  • Reliable, cost-effective IP telephony with our battle-tested best practices built in.
  • A more modern, intuitive user experience that integrates with all key applications.
  • Total control and transparency that public-cloud SaaS faxing can’t provide.

Traditional faxing burdens healthcare orgs

Traditional fax systems, once the backbone of healthcare communication, have become bottlenecks in our digital era.

  • Cost and inefficiency: Physical fax machines and dedicated lines rack up expenses, while manual document handling leads to errors and inefficiencies.
  • Compliance risks: Stringent privacy standards, namely HIPAA, raise the stakes of patient information security. Safeguards on traditional faxing rely heavily on physical handling and individual human behavior. There is little in the way of an audit trail, and virtually no way to automate the enforcement of privacy practices.
  • Impact on patient care: Traditional faxing is prone to reliability issues like failed or delayed transmissions. Not only are they difficult (or impossible) to troubleshoot, but they can directly impact the speed and quality of patient care.

Private Fax Cloud lets healthcare orgs leave these headaches behind, leapfrog years of struggling with in-house fax solutions, and implement 2024’s best practices from day one.
